Incredible app! (With some room for improvement)

This has immediately become a go to tool for quick inspiration while I’m on the go! It’s an invaluable treasure to me as a songwriter a d producer and I would HIGHLY recommend it to anyone who creates music for a living! The pro version is worth every penny as well, and is a steal at just $5. However, I do wish you could add more than 4 chords to a progression, if the developer reads the feedback on any regular basis, please include that in the next update. Also, including functionality for things like playback timing for chords (1/2 bar or 1/3 bar or 1/8 bar, etc. as opposed to the full bar that it currently uses to play the chords back). And an expanded chord library including 7ths, 9ths, 11ths, Suspended, etc. would also make this the PERFECT producer/songwriter’s companion.

Amazing! This is Just what I was looking for.!

I was a former sax player in college and also tickled the ivory on occasion, back in my day. I hadn’t played in decades and was more than a little rusty to say the least. This app is so well thought out, simple to use and elegant. The two drop down menus for tempo and key signature are very convenient. The chord variation dial one of my favorite features. Nice touch with the keyboard on the screen displaying the actual fingering, with you can change with the variation dial. I’ve had no complaints! And I almost forgot to mention, the the list at the bottom of the app c
Showing all the chords that can be played in that key. Fantastic guys! Keep up the great work! Stay safe and thanks again. We are all enjoying our piano nights again.

As an Artist and Producer who plays by ear, this app is perfect for helping me hone in on specific emotions I’m trying to convey through music. It gives me chords and ideas I can build on and haven’t thought about yet. It’s definitely my go-to when I need to get out of the block, and I need a spark plug to get things going. Not only does this app provide endless chord progressions based on moods and keys, but the ability to change the playback from guitars to pianos or ukuleles helps to inspire ideas as well. I’ve had this app for years. I highly suggest purchasing the app and getting full access. You can’t go wrong with this one.
